found this a few years ago at John Beland's website:
In Nashville, recording a duet with the lovely ALISON KRAUSS, for the FBB CD "SONS OF THE GOLDEN WEST." We had a great time doing this. She has the voice of an angel...It was an honor to have shared a microphone ith her.

Hi jtnpa, I tried that link to that photo and couldn't get anything!!!!! Can you try posting it in the column here? I'm sure Allie can tell you how, if you don't know. Don't ask me, I can barely type!!

HELP!! I am gradually building a good collection of photos of Alison and the guys, and there are two photos which I saw a long time ago, that I cannot find!!!
The first is from 2008, and is a close-up high-density facial shot of Alison seated at a dinner table in a restaurant, smiling and facing to the viewer's right; and her eyes are turned all the way to her left in the photo. If anybody has that photo, and maybe any others taken that evening at that table, could you please post them here?
The second one is from 2003, from an event called 4th Annual Women Who Rock, sponsored by Safilo Sunglasses; in the photo she is seated at a long table (probably side-by-side with other people, but they aren't in the photo), there is a little paper folded card on the table in front of her with her name on it; she is wearing blue overalls, over a white?/pale yellow? top with little red and green decorations on it, which is over another top with wide red and dark blue horizontal stripes, that just shows a little on the left side of the neck opening; she is looking to the viewer's right, and her right hand is raised in the air with her index finger extended, sort of, as if she were either asking permission to ask a question (hardly likely) or (more likely) making some ludicrous statement possibly comparing the size of something. Again, if anyone has that photo, and maybe others from the same event, would love to have them!!!! Thanks!!!!
So…Alison…when are you going to do a Christmas album? I did ask. She said she doesn’t know. I told her my belief that if she did do such a recording, it would most likely immediately end up becoming one of those classic Christmas recordings like The Carpenters and stuff.
I’m amazed that Alison remembers when we first met. 1991…I was working for her attorney. We were both but young girls then. She looks a lot different now than she did then. She lost a bunch of weight whilst I found it. I like Alison both musically and as a person. Not that we’re like THIS but anytime I’ve ever been around her, she is so real and so un-showbidness-like. She is very tall and very thin.
The Manchild wanted to meet her cause she knows Robert Plant. I thought it was cool when Alison told the Manchild that her brother had gone to see the Led Zeppelin show in London the night before. Because the Manchild is not one to show much emotion, she probably couldn’t tell that he was pretty dadgum impressed.
All I can think of when I look at this picture is how badly I need a haircut and that I wish I’d have put more lipstick on. My gray roots are showing so badly that my pal, former co-worker Dave said to me today “Your hair looks good. Nice gray highlights.” Bleh.
There was a second part to the Alison Krauss thing the other day that I have to tell. It was wonderful.
Our friend Holly, that we sing with some, is an incredibly talented high school junior who ADORES Alison. When I found out Alison was taping at Hazel’s, I immediately tried to conspire to get Holly there to meet her. I wanted to surprise her…like kidnap her and her be saying “Where are we going?” And then walk her in the house and voila! Alison Krauss. That’s what we were going to do til I realized I told them the wrong day and it was not Friday but Tuesday. Holly had a trip with her school’s show choir this last week to perform at the Biltmore. Her mom suggested we get her mandolin and have Alison sign it, which we did.
Thursday night, Holly was about to perform in the school’s Christmas concert so I took her mandolin to her. First, she looked a little befuddled…”What is SHE doing here?” (She didn’t say that but I know she was thinking it).
I have to point out that Holly is a very poised and mature young lady. She is quite reserved (when I’m around her) and I’ve never seen her act like a lot of teenaged girls do….kinda like the Holy Tara….all giggly and stuff.
So, I go with Holly’s parents to find her and she came out and I said “Holly…I found your mandolin. You better check it and make sure it’s ok.” Again….the “?” look from Holly. She took it out of the case and she was looking at the signature but Alison….well….let’s just say it’s a good thing she can sing. Great at penmanship, she is not. Holly couldn’t tell what it was at first.
Then, I pointed out the only really legible thing in the signature, which was the A. This was Holly’s response:
She was so cute. “You mean…..she TOUCHED MY mandolin?” (Her mandolin’s name is “Amanda”…as in “A Mandolin.”) I’ve gotten autographs for people before and stuff like this but to see somebody that joyful and surprised….much fun.
Whoa...Alison looked mighty spiffy here last night! No hand me downs for Mr. Robert
